When we want to enjoy upscale dining, this Ruth's Chris (only better) place is our go-to! The food and service are excellent, and we've never been disappointed. This is not inexpensive, but it is "dining" not just "eating"! When we don't want to eat or pay quite as much, we LOVE the happy hour dining in the lounge menu. If... More

I have eaten at West for special occasions and happy hour frequently. For a special occasion you can't beat the atmosphere, service and food. I've had most of the items offered on the happy hour menu--all excellent and plenty of food to suffice for a light dinner. Classy, cozy, upscale--perfect.

Who knew a steak house would have a wonderful vegetarian plate?! Beautifully presented and delivered by the chef himself. All freshly picked from the farm and interestingly prepared with different flavors and textures. The rest of the meal was excellent as well, with good service and classic steak house ambiance.

Very good, classic, fancy steak house. Food is always excellent. The dining area is fancy, so if you want to be more casual, eat in the lounge. No better steak around.

I'll be back, we were a group of 8 - service was fabulous. Incredible choices on the menu. A lot of product came from their own gardens. Bison, and many other wild game selections. Very large wine menu. Locals said it is always crowded, and their guests always rave about it. Just Like me!!! I'll be back.

Great restaurant attached to the West Inn and Suites hotel. Great service, and well prepared foods. If you're a meat eater give this a try.

Service here is outstanding. If Ann Marie is there, ask for her. Quite pricey, but quiet, intimate and romantic. The "Sunday Supper" (petit filet or prime rib) is a good value, especially with the two large side-dish portions given. There is nothing not to like, except maybe your waistline the day after and your Amex statement!
